" Sending my show horses to Brain Scoggins for training has been one of the best decisions of my show career. I have been consistently showing horses for over 15 years and Brian always has new insight to improve my riding skills as well as my horse's performance. He is a true horseman who cares not only about the horses but also about the riders. I love being a part of STC! "
